Who can visit the UK?

Anyone can apply to visit the UK, but some nationalities require prior entry clearance (a visa) before travelling even for a short period. Visitor visas are normally valid for six months and permit multiple entries into the UK.

To be able to visit the UK, you must:

  • intend to leave at the end of your visit;
  • plan to stay for no more than six months;
  • be able to support and accommodate yourself without working;
  • be able to meet the cost of a return or outward journey.

Different rules apply to certain types of visitor visa - for example, you may wish to travel to receive private medical treatment or travel to the UK for business. Remember there are restrictions on exactly what a visitor is allowed to do while in the UK, so it is important you know what permitted activities you can undertake while here.
